Hays Reveals The UK's Jobs Offering The Best Opportunities





Released on: August 03, 2010, 4:46 am
Author: Hays
Industry: Human Resources

Hays, the leading recruiting expert, has revealed the top ten job areas, which are currently exhibiting the strongest demand for candidates in the UK.

As a result of long development cycles the pharmaceutical industry came out on top of the new “most wanted” list. Areas such as regulatory affairs, health economics and statistical programming are faring particularly well due to the increase in safety measures and the need to check products going into the prescription markets.

The second key area revealed by the research was banking jobs in the city. In particular, the banks are looking for revenue generators who are client-facing, with a strong banking background and appropriate levels of managing risk and control, as the majority of investment, corporate and retail banks are still trying to re-build their businesses.

Doctors, qualified social workers and other healthcare professionals all came out well, benefiting from a more secure job environment due to prevailing shortages. The NHS has an ageing workforce and specialist nurses are particularly in demand across the UK.

The demand for candidates to fill a wealth of IT jobs has risen by nearly 30% in 2010. This is partly down to the release of MS Windows 7, which has helped increase the demand for IT staff to support home users or smaller organisations.

The fifth major sector of the economy which Hays found was showing particularly high demand was non-banking finance jobs. At a time when companies are looking to save money newly qualified accountants are in demand, as well as analysts who can see where cost and process savings can be made.

Other resilient and growing markets which currently appear to be showing particularly high levels of demand for candidates to fill roles include the energy industry, digital marketing jobs, legal professionals in the finance and employment arenas, insurance jobs and social housing.
